FRANKLIN TOWNSHIP, Mich. – Authorities from multiple departments are conducting a large search at the property of a Lenawee County woman who disappeared in April.
Crime Stoppers publicly asked for help in the search for Warner on May 6, saying her family hadn’t heard from her in two weeks.
“We’re a small community,” Lenawee County Sheriff Troy Bevier said. “A lot of people knew Dee, and so this really hits close to home. There’s a lot of people that this is impacting.”
On Monday (Oct. 11), deputies confirmed they are conducting another search of her home and the surrounding property. They hope to uncover information on her whereabouts, and investigators will continue to examine that information.
“There’s no big tip that facilitated this,” Bevier said. “Really what this is, is kind of a culmination of all the work that we’ve been doing over the summer. We’ve been pretty much following up on every lead and all the information, and this just seemed like a prudent time to come out and do another search -- a really good, thorough search of the property.”
Michigan State Police, the FBI, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources and others are involved in the search, officials said. They used dogs and ground-penetrating radar.
Bevier said this is an ongoing missing person’s case and police want to find some answers for the family.
Anyone with information about Warner’s disappearance is asked to call the Lenawee County Sheriff’s Office at 517-264-5364.
